Way up north in Vilas County lies a gorgeous bike trail that stretches for more than 50 miles. A bicycle really is the best way to explore this part of our great state and the Heart of Vilas County Paved Bike Trail System connects St. Germain, Sayner, Boulder Junction, Manitowish Waters, and Mercer as it winds through the Northern Highland American Legion Forest.
Everything you could ever want to know about the trail is available on their website, including detailed information on each segment, where you can rent bikes and where the super convenient bike fix stations are located along the route. They’re really thought of everything.
You can start the Heart of Vilas Trail at the main trailhead behind the St. Germain Chamber of Commerce, where Highway 70 meets Highway 155. The Chamber of Commerce Address is 473 WI-70, St Germain, WI 54558.
